I saw Dr. Buchholz one week ago for my first visit with her. She couldn't have been nicer. Good bedside manner, and explained everything in a calm way.

I have an appointment scheduled via Zocdoc for this week, they confirmed my appointment 3 days ago. I arranged to take a day off work in order to make my appointment and then I get an email saying her office has canceled my appointment with no notice, no contact, nothing. Very disappointed, terrible service and treatment of patients.

Is she a physician? I had a horrible experience by not properly treating my skin condition, she requested to return in a month, never returned and never will. Decide to visit a real physician and indicated that the procedure by the previous doctor was WRONG! After the first visit to the real Doctor, my conditions got better. THIS PHYSICIAN SHOULD BE BAR FROM PRACTICING

Terrible. She misdiagnosed me, not realizing I had cellulitis, and gave me a cream which made it so much worse. Infection spread all over my torso and was horribly painful. When I called to discuss, she refused to get on the phone! I just wanted to figure it out and treat it, but I guess she was too worried about lawsuits to worry about my excruciating pain. She put her Assistant on the phone, and I could hear Dr. Buchholz telling the asst to blame me! I repeat, terrible. Do not use.

After waiting exactly 60 minutes, I went in and told the physician's assistant I wanted A) a cyst removed and B) a few moles frozen off. I was told Dr B will only address one issue at a time-- I'd have to return to the office (and thus fork over another co-pay). This is her policy with new patients. I reminded her I saw Dr B in 2014. But since my insurance changed, they were considering me a new patient so no changing their rule. THEN I was told Dr B does not remove cysts. What does she do???

Amazingly thorough.

The office was difficult. I made an appointment for which I got a confirmation call. When I arrived they had no record of my appointment nor referral. They made me go to my primary care physician's office to get a copy of the referral which they said should have been viewable on the computer. The doctor was ok. Very speedy. Didn't engender confidence.
